TITLE: Making Global Trade Work for People
EDITOR: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
PUBLISHER: Earthscan
DATE: January 2003

NOTE: UNDP has recently released a report entitled "Making Global Trade Work
for People". It was prepared by a team of experts coordinated by UNDP, with
the support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Rockefeller Foundation,
UNDP itself, Ford Foundation, Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Wallace
Global Fund. The report calls on governments to "replace" the World Trade
Organisation's agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property
Rights (TRIPS), and similar efforts to set high international standards for
IPR regimes in the South, with "alternate intellectual property paradigms"
delinked from trade sanctions.
